The first thing I noticed, the video was for hydraulic brakes. Since I see a cable going to your brakes you have mechanical. I do not know the brand as I can not see any logos in your picture.

I suggest you go to the manufactures web site of your brakes and look for user manuals or service manuals. Your style of brake requires a different approach to adjustment than do the hydraulic brakes.

The shop I work at one day a week offers free for life adjustments to the bikes they sell, you might check with the shop you purchased your bike from to see if they have the same service.

Better yet go to www.Parktool.com and click on repair help and scroll down to avid mechanical brake disc adjustment.

Good luck.

I've had a very similar issue with the same brakes (or similar... don't know what yours are, mine are BB7s). The rotor ends up going VERY close to that mounting area. My fix has been similar: place something in between to keep distance while tightening. However, it's a bit of an awkward process and I'm somewhat mystified as to why this should be a problem with these brakes at all.

Did that tool come with 9 others and if you ordered now a second set completely free (just pay a small shipping and handling fee)? But wait! There's more! Pay by credit card and receive a stainless steel 4-piece BBQ serving set!

LOL. I hacked a fork once (cut off the two middle of the four tines and file them down a bit) to make it into a headlight switch bezel removal tool for my '72 VW Bug. Boy, was my mom po'd!

A lightly honey, my heart is greeting sweet. A heartfelt greeting is light, as a permanent. A distant care is the person, waiting. A wisp of soft water, with people concern is autumn.
